I have a background in informatics with a focus on human-computer interaction, now teaching and pursuing research in the area of interaction design. My recent work focuses on designing for interactions in public space using an interdisciplinary approach known as media architecture. I have contributed to the development of media architecture as a research field through my work in this area and through co-organising events, including the Media Architecture Biennale.

Dr Martin Tomitsch is a Lecturer in the Faculty of Architecture, Design and Planning at the the University of Sydney and Director of the Design Computing program. He is a research member of the Design Lab, member of CHAI, honorary research fellow at the Vienna University of Technology's Research Group for Industrial Software (INSO), and founding member at the Media Architecture Institute(MAI).
